Spoiler alert: The boys all die.
Interesting 2 films made by a kid's group. One is a scratch film, and it's pretty typical results for a bunch of kids making a scratch film. But the piano score is quite something. After that is a drama or something about building a brick tower. Not much to this film. Ah kids these days.
